Converting an html dl (delimited list) on a page to a table from the Chrome console

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/14

A while ago, I wanted to convert the dl delimited list html element on a web page into a regular table so I could more easily reorder the data into cells.

So I ran the below bit of code in the Chrome Console after first putting the mentioned table with id here_table in the place where I wanted the table to be included:

<table id="here_table"></table>

view raw

var arr = $("#delimitedList").children().map(function () {
return $(this).html();
for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i += 2) {
$('#here_table').append('<tr><td>' + arr[i] + '</td><td>' + arr[i + 1] + '</td></tr>');

For this script to work, you need jQuery, so yesterday I wrote Better, Stronger, Safer jQuerify Bookmarklet | Learning jQuery.

The code is based on [Wayback/] Rebuild each definition list () as a table using JQuery – Stack Overflow (thanks [Wayback/] easy!) with an important adoption instead of calling text() to get the textual dt and dd information, it uses html() so the original innerHTML is being preserved.

Some similar JavaScript pieces of code are at [Wayback/] Turning HTML into a nested JavaScript array with jQuery – Stack Overflow.

On my list of things to try: chrome flag: global-media-controls (older article, it’s live in stable now)

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/09/12

[WayBack] Roderick Gadellaa on Twitter: “My new favorite chrome flag: global-media-controls (older article, it’s live in stable now)… “

[WayBack ]Chrome is testing new media playback controls that can even work with background tabs

To enable to controls, head to chrome://flags/#global-media-controls. After a browser restart, you’ll see a play button in your toolbar next to the extensions whenever you have media playing in Chrome. Clicking it will show the title of what’s playing, where it’s playing from, and provide play/pause and skip buttons.

How To Fix “Google Photos Not Uploading” On Android & iPhone

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/08/22

For my link archive, as sometimes uploading does not proceed, and I want to figure out the cause: [Wayback/] How To Fix “Google Photos Not Uploading” On Android & iPhone

Before you start: Check your Back up Status

  1. Diagnose your Internet Connection
  2. Ensure you’re using the right backup settings
  3. Enable Backup Device Folders
  4. Disable Battery Optimization for Google Photos
  5. Enable Background Data Usage
  6. Keep Google Photos updated
  7. Reset/Reinstall the Google Photos app

I had to revert to 7. as 5. was already set, and 4. was not available in the settings.

That solved my issues.

Automatically reload page in Chrome without plugin – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/14

Below is a cool solution to refresh a page using a bookmarklet is to embed it into an iframe, then automatically reload it every interval.

It for instance works for the [Wayback/] Woonveilig and often in Fritz!Box environments.

[Wayback] Jon described the below method as a solution for his own question, 6 years after asking it in [Wayback/] Automatically reload page in Chrome without plugin – Super User.

So I made this a bookmark:

javascript:document.getElementsByTagName("body")[0].innerHTML = "<iframe id=\"testFrame\" src=\""+window.location.toString()+"\" style=\"position: absolute; top:0; left:0; right:0; bottom:0; width:100%; height:100%;\"><\/iframe>";reloadTimer = setInterval(function(){ document.getElementById("testFrame").src=document.getElementById("testFrame").src },5*60*1000)

(it is in a gist as the WordPress editors keep killing the embedded html code, despite it being escaped within <code> tags.
